Would you like to know how close to a shopping center this property is located? You have a Kroger's and Food Town Shopping Centers in less than a mile from the house. Klein High School as well as intermediate and elementary schools are about the same distance on Louetta Rd and Highway 249 is about 7 minutes.

Let me know if you have any other questions...

Thank you and God Bless,

The Best thing to do is to go directly to the School web site since the zoning for different addresses can change during any school calendar year.

If you go to the Hmble ISD School District, you may be able to type in any address in the area you are interested in and it will tell you which Schools that house is zoned to as well as the ratings of the Schools.(Now not all of the Schools Districts are the same but if really important I would definetely give them a call to make sure)

If you happen to have any other question, my information is below...

Hi Chandler
Owner financing is at the discretion of the owner. There aren't really any set rules.

The pro is that if you can't qualify for a mortgage presently, owner financing can let you get into a home.

The Con is that the owner can require whatever they want. They can set your interest rate and will likely require a LARGE down payment so that in the event you default on the loan they can take back the home and put it back on the market.

Even with a large down payment, most sellers will want to see some proof that you intend on paying them. If you have a credit report that shows everything going to collections, then you're probably going to have a tough time.

The easiest way to get seller financing is if you can prove that the reason your credit is lower is because of an isolated incident and not a pattern of financial mismanagement.

Hope this helps!

You can contact the listing agent who will be able to help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's Trulia listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

Contact a local agent to view the property. Yes, sometimes the pictures don't reflect the actual condition of the property.

Tim Moore answered:
The question is how do you know it is listed above market value at all? Market value is always somewhat subjective based on the comps used to come up with the value. I could use ABC and you could use XYZ and we each get a different value for the property. It is not an exact science and there is always some wiggle room in the value obtained. Make your offer and see what the sellers says. If you came in 22% below my list price I, as a seller, might not even reply to the offer. Offer what you think is fair and see if the seller counters it and go from there. ... more

Ron Thomas answered:
What this means is that the SELLER has an inflated idea of what the property is worth:
Your Bank, undoubtedly, will not loan you the Listing Price.
You can Offer $21k less, but it sounds like the Seller will have to adjust.
The alternative is you coming up with $21K cash, and therefore paying too much.
Good Luck and may God bless

Hello Mr. Lopez,

Yes, You can file your Homestead for the 2013 fical year.

Property tax exemptions are available through every county in the State of Texas. There are different discounts available, including regular homestead exemptions, VA exemptions, and over-65 exemptions, among others. Most home buyers qualify for the homestead exemption, which provides a tax discount that is determined by the location of the home and your particular situation. These savings can be a significant discount on your monthly mortgage payment.

Property Tax Exemption information can be found at:

Edith Karoline Jasser answered:
Since I am not a Realtor from your area, this is a hard question to answer. A local experienced Realtor though will be able to give you some insight, although as you know none of us has a crystal ball to predict the future. I think you need to look at how solid your current renter is, if they would rent for another year.... By the way a good advice I often give my clients in a similar situation as you, as your current lease nears the end put the home on the market, if and when your current renters do not want to extend the lease another year, and put it on the market for both sale as well as rental and see
what the responses are going to be.

Just a suggestion, but a local Realtor may have a better insight in your market, or after having seen
your home, its upgrades, floor plan and size and exact location, can give you better advice. Also you
should look at how much equity you do have in the home that is currently rented, does the rent cover your expenses, and then look at the market evaluation and recently sold homes to determine
if continue to rent or sell now or in the Spring is a better choice for you.

I hope this helps...
